ART EXHIBIT APRIL 7 – MAY 8 2014 AT I-SQUARE GALLERY
After an early retirement from Kodak, Leo Dodd had plenty of time to pursue what was once a spare time hobby – sketching. Barns, the River Regatta, protest gatherings, downtown buildings and especially construction projects are favorite subjects. He spent so much time at the Can of Worms site that the Brighton Pittsford Post featured him in a full page story. His engineering eye was abetted by watercolor classes at RIT where he eventually taught watercolor courses. He has studied with Milford Zorne, Dong Kingman and Fred Lipp at the Creative Workshop in the Memorial Art Gallery. The seven Dodd children couldn’t help but be influenced.
